The spokesperson for the London Police Service is familiar with speaking and singing in front of a crowd, but on Monday evening she’ll do it in front of her biggest audience yet.

Const. Sandasha Bough has been chosen to sing the Canadian and American national anthems at tonight’s Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre.

Bough’s name was put forward by a friend and she was notified last week that she’d been chosen.

“It was very quick. I am very nervous, but really excited and really honoured.”

Monday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles will have greater meaning as they honour the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Bough will also sing in full uniform.

First pitch goes at 7:07 p.m. and the game can be heard live on AM980.
